‘Chappaquiddick’ Review: A Meticulous and Authentic Docudrama | Variety

Around 11:00 p.m., they drive out to the beach. Ted, who’s been guzzling whiskey from a bottle, zooms away from a local cop (he doesn’t want to be caught drunk, or seen with a pretty blonde he may have designs on). He then turns his gaze toward Mary Jo — and that’s the moment he drives off the bridge. It’s a short wooden structure, with no guard rails, and after fighting his way out of the water, he walks, in a daze, back to the cottage. He may be soused, but he’s already in damage-control mode.


Don't forget.

Don't forget? All of the MSM and most of the electorate forgot while Ted was in office.

I'm sceptical. If, with all the Kennedy money and power to protect him, he more-or-less admitted to abandoning the girl to drown, I reckon we can be pretty confident he did something worse. Rape? Manslaughter? Murder? Dunno, but something pretty bad.
